I'd like to know if Clutterflow can be enabled by default every time I open the Nautilus file manager. It's a really good looking plug-in.

Update: In 11.04 The Icons shown by Clutterflow are corrupted.

i'm there but... Once opened you will see your category tree.. There is one called Other, click it and on the right you will see the one called Open Folder Select it and right click>properties or Click properties on the right hand side and you will see a box where you can edit the launcher. – Uri Herrera May 19 '11 at 9:00
can't see that? – Uri Herrera May 19 '11 at 9:00
nevermind it was hidden.. – Uri Herrera May 19 '11 at 9:01
Well, if you just change the "file manager" launcher instead of the "open folder" one so it points to the sh file you created it should always launch nomatter what.. The file manager launcher is in the other category in my menu editor. – fatriff May 19 '11 at 13:48

According to a nautilus-elementary developer commenting on a similar question, this feature was in the works, but given that nautilus-elementary development has stopped I don't think this feature will ever be added.

So in short, No you can not make Clutterflow open automatically everytime you open up Nautilus.
